FISHERS - The Fishers' lacrosse team edged a visiting squad from Hilliard, Ohio, 8-7 Saturday.

Overcast and cold were the weather conditions for the Tigers fourth game of the 2017 season at Reynolds Tiger Stadium. The Tigers played host to Hilliard Davidson, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.

The Wildcat's attackman David St. Clair (4 goals, 1 assist) would score first at the 6:18 mark of the first quarter. The Tigers would fight back and senior attackman Joe O'Connell (5 goals) scored at the 5:04 mark of the first quarter to tie the game at 1. Junior Goalie Isaiah Dunnuck (9 saves) made 2 key saves during the quarter to keep the Tigers tied at 1.

The Tigers would start off strong in the second quarter scoring another 3 goals to create a 4 goal run. The Wildcats would score a goal at the 7:02 mark in the second which made the score 4-2 but the Tigers would score another 2 goals by O'Connell and senior midfielder Joel Smyth (2 goals). The second quarter would be the most productive offensively for the Tigers as they outshot the Wildcats 16-5 in the quarter. Isaiah Dunnuck would tally 4 saves in the the quarter keeping the Tigers in the game.

The Wildcats took control early in the second half by scoring 4 unanswered goals by winning 4 straight face offs and with patient and efficient possessions. The Wildcat run would force the Tigers to call a timeout and regroup. The Tigers would reclaim the lead at the 6:27 mark in the third quarter as senior attackman Justin Wilson would find a cutting Joe O'Connell for his fifth goal of the game. Isaiah Dunnuck would tally another 2 key saves in the quarter.

There were many scoring opportunities for both teams in a very tight fourth quarter. The best offensive play of the quarter and argueably the game was when senior midfielder Cameron Gieselman made a terrific feed to a cutting Joel Smyth to give the Tigers an 8-6 lead. Wildcat attackman Alex Van Voorhis (1 goal, 1 assist) would score to bring the Wildcats within a goal at the 3:45 mark or the quarter. The final minutes of the quarter would be tense as the Tigers would turn the ball over at the 3 minute mark of the fourth and would not get possession back for the remainder of the game. The defense led by senior defensemen Parker Smith (5 ground balls, 3 takeaways), Zach Celentano (3 ground balls, 1 takeaway) and Branden Stoeffler (3 ground balls, 3 takeaways) would play outstanding pressure defense to seal the victory for the Tigers 8-7.
